Oh bugger. I'm so so constipated :ashamed0005:

I can feel it sitting there. I've tried senokot, which initially worked, but I've had it 3 days running now, and nothing much is happening!

I spoke to my CDC who said that if senokot isn't doing the trick, then the fibre 89 won't do much either.


I have a tin of sweetcorn sitting next to me, unopened..............

Ah crap (nice choice of word there!). Put the sweetcorn away dammit!! If it's full of carbs (no idea if this is true btw) then you really must not have it!

That I do believe is bad! I have a pot of cottage cheese which is 7.2g of carbs and that is an allowed food on AAM.

I'm a wuss, and wouldn't be able to drink anything like that, I'd end up vomiting it all back up. I think I might have to get an enema from work, lol!

Oh bum. I'll put the sweetcron away then! lol

Oh Nikki, thats so lovely of you, but I really couldn't. I seriously don't think I could stomach it. I'm going to go to asda later and buy some dulcox type stuff, I believe this is stronger!

movicol is a powder that readily dissolves in water to go clear. It tastes a bit salty. Down it in a oner and bobs your uncle. Mind you I am a great believer it attacking it from both ends iykwim. So I would deffo do a micralax and/or glycerin suppository. the supp will lubricate and slightly stimulate and there you will go! (wet or lube it first!). Cos this diet is so low residue sometimes the stool is long and lean so not much for the bowel wall to push on and out, so it needs some lube so it can slide out. TMI i know.
